The Use of Scaling and Conferences in the Improvement of Handwriting in the Intermediate Grades of an Elementary School in New York City
The improvement project in handwriting here described was carried out in a 1A-6B school of twenty-two classes. A preliminary survey showed that the handwriting throughout the school was of very low quality. This survey showed further that the handwriting in the 3A grade was better than that in the 6B grade. This condition prevailed in October, 1931, at which time the project was begun. The problem was, first of all, to develop a "penmanship consciousness" on the part both of the teachers and of the pupils, and then to carry on an intensive campaign against defective handwriting in all of the classes.
